Thank You To The Guy In The Blue Truck

1 post in this topic

Thank you very much to the guy in the blue Dodge truck that helped me and my three young daughters get our Suburban and our trailer turned around on Chisago yesterday. I don't know if he was a FM'r or not, but he was a life saver and he gave up about an hour of his time and a lot of sweat. He helped us when do many others were content to keep on going and look the other way. All he wanted in return was to promise to help the next guy, which I did about an hour later at the Coon Lake access. The snow is deep and I can tell you first hand that I saw plent of 4 x 4's stuck on various lakes. I wouldn't recommend pulling trailers right now. My trailers's tires are wider than my truck and it also rides a lot lower. In this heavy snow, it was like having an anchor out.

I checked Chisago, Green, Linwood, Martin, Island, and Coon Lake. Only Chisago had a narrow road and it looked like the portables were stacked like cord wood at the end of it.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
